Will I ever finish one thing at a time? Probably not.

More (better) sketches of Pru(dence) from my short. Yay!

Hopefully I can do the storyboards tomorrow!

Change of plans...

Well, I've decided not to finish this piece of artwork for the originally intended receiver. Now it's just going to be finished as "random jedi project".

I'm adding shadows and lines... not sure how the shadows are working, but I think it's coming along okay...

Any suggestions would be swell since this is not my usual style of rendering!

Also I'm going to try and do some texture on this once I finish the line work and shadows.

Getting to know you, getting to know all about you....

All too often, I am reminded of song lyrics when thinking of blog titles.

Here's some more character sketches of Prudence. I'm much happier with this character design; drawing her is like drinking water; it's simple, clean and easy.

I used a few photos from Alix - aka, the Cherry Blossom Girl on her site as reference for a few of the poses. She's got some amazing photography up there, mostly of herself, which is crazy because she sets up the shots and then poses for them with a timer or a switcher. She's a fashion major (she might have graduated by now) in Paris and so her stuff is usually about the clothes, which is fun too. Either way her site is fantastico, so go enjoy the loveliness!

Man, I'm totally giving shout outs lately. I guess I gotta give respect where it's due!

Character Sheet Redesign (Sorry this title is desperately lacking in the cleverness department!)

After realizing there was no way I could animate Prudence the way I had drawn her in the previous model sheet, I decided a revamp of her character was in order. ...Also, a revamp of the story. Working on the storyboards. I finally have my inspiration back! Apollo is finally smiling down on me!

What might you ask gave me this inspiration? Well, part of it was sheer willpower to force something out - like striking a wet match, it's fairly improbable, but hardly impossible. So I started the character yesterday at Bittersweet Cafe on Fillmore St and then tonight after looking through some amazing sketches and rough animation on this fantasmic blog that posts artwork by the brilliant Glen Keane:

I finally got the true inspiration to draw all this. More to come.
